I’ve decided to start a #tbt feature on my blog, this will revolve around using some older products and palettes that I just don’t reach for anymore. Todays post is a look I created using the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.
This palette is all about the taupe shades, it was one of my first eyeshadow palettes and I used to wear it almost every day! The shades Bootycall and Suspect were my absolute favourites, and the shade Tease was the first product I used for my eyebrows! This still is such a pretty palette, it’s missing a few matte brown shades but other than that I loved having a play with it and I really want to commit to using it more!
To create a winged eyeshadow shape I first applied some tape to the corners of my eyes, I try to follow the line from nose to the end of my eyebrow.
I used Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base to help bring out the pigmentation of the eyeshadows. I started by applying Tease through my crease, I applied quite a few layers of this shade to help build up the intensity and the colour. I then went through the crease with a mix of Tease and Blackout, to further darken the crease and outer V.
I then went into the shade Snakebite, I applied this to the mobile lid using my finger to get the most pigmentation from the shade. I then topped up and smoothed out the colour using a small shader brush, before going back through the crease with a large fluffy brush and the shade Tease.
To add a little pop to this look I used the shade Half Baked on the centre of the lid, I applied this wet to get a more metallic finish. I love how this added so much extra dimension to the look.
I then lined my waterline with the Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil in Legend. For the lower lash line I used Tease on the inner third and then began to mix this with Blackout towards the outer corner. I then coated my lashes in MAC Extended Play Mascara and applied Milan Glam Lashes by So Su by Suzanne Jackson.
To finish the look I applied Half Baked to the inner corners and used Bootycall and Foxy along the browbone. For the lips I used Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick in Child Star and topped this is Natural Quirk by MAC.
I loved diving back into some old makeup of mine and had so much fun creating this look! What old school product would you like for the next throwback Thrusday?

Note: Please excuse my bloodshot eyes! My hay fever start to play up as soon as I started taking pictures! My eyes were watering so much I lost all the makeup on my lashline and the falsies wouldn’t stick properly! Such a disaster haha x
